If your old enough to remember that every second film starred the leads of this film in 1980’s & 1990’s Billy Crystal and Better Midler . So this Christmas are you in the mood to join them in a new film, Parental Guidance? Twentieth Century Fox Pictures UK have sent us the UK trailer!
Apart from been Hollywood’s favourite Oscar presenter Crystal hasn’t been in a live action film since Analyse This which came out 2002 as for his onscreen wife Bette Midler apart from voice acting 2008 The Women and yes folks this will be your alternative Boxing Day alternative up against Tom Cruise and Jack Reacher! Crystal and Midler play grandparents who babysit their daughter’s 3 kids (Marisa Tomei) but as they attempt to look after the kids the old traditional ways things spiral out of control. I would this one will attract the older cinephiles but so will Jack Reacher with it been a popular Lee Childs Novel, I don’t mind Crystal and Midler on the screen but only with something stronger and better. Parental Guidance is very predictable from its old school one liners, crazy all tantrums that were OK 20plus years ago however Christmas does provide some real family howlers and this film may have it’s faults but its not the worse either.
Parental Guidance will arrive in UK&Irish cinemas December 26th.
Comedy legends Billy Crystal and Bette Midler play Artie and Diane Decker, who are called in by their daughter (Marisa Tomei) to help care for their three grandkids. When their old-school parenting methods collide with their daughter’s new-school ways, the once-orderly household spins out of control.
